I think of Denzel Washington as a good actor, but not more than that. Recently, however, that changed as I bumped into a speech he held to graduating students. As I looked at him, I suddenly wondered why he didn’t end up as a preacher.
Denzel Washington said lots of great things in the speech, but let me just emphasize one thing he said that made a great impact on me.
In the speech, Denzel Washington spoke about the importance of having faith in God. But, he also spoke about pursuing your dreams. And it was as he spoke about dreams, that he said what I quoted earlier.
He is actually saying that if you have a big desire in your heart for anything that is good, that is actually Gods way of saying to you that he has it prepared for you. You might desire bad stuff, but that isn’t what he is speaking about. But, if you have a dream in your heart for something that is good, something that will have an impact on the people around you in a good way, that is Gods way of telling you that it is yours, and it is for you to go ahead and take hold of it.
Are you ready? What do you think? I would love to hear your thoughts about this saying from Denzel Washington!
